We are entering the second week of this unprecedented period and the new normal reminds us of what we can’t do to protect the NHS and ourselves. The thought of living this way for more months is not pleasant; it grates against the freedom we enjoyed.
This is brought even further into focus in shipping parts to countries we have visited in the past and people and companies we have got to know through trade shows – all now living with even more restrictions than we have in the UK. Many businesses like our own are working hard to supply critical spares to support hard-pressed people in the food and medical sectors.
We are seeing urgency driven in some instances by people’s lives being dependant on far faster deliveries than normal. With a reduced staff to protect our own people, we are not on the front line like the NHS but we are living and feeling that urgency.
We are open and working; we have good stocks of most materials and we can prioritise urgent needs.
